I have currently submitted to gs-code-review patches for
Windows & OS/2 code cleanup
replace exit() with return.
stdio using callouts
I am awaiting responses to these.
I have two more changes to send.
Put all stdout/stderr access through a single function
to allow redirection.
New API (DLL/shared object) interface.
The latter is ready, but depends on the former.
I need to write the stdout/stderr code, but it is straightforward.
Essentially it removes nearly all references to stdout or stderr and
puts all output through functions outprintf() or errprintf().
I will endeavour to get these to you within the next week.
I really do want these changes to be part of the 7.0 release.
It will improve the Ghostscript interface on a number of platforms,
particularly Windows, Linux and Mac.
